Doula Guide + Workbook

This 84 page doula guide and workbook has been a labor of love since I began doula work in 2016. Included in this guide are all my best tips and favorite resources for pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Inside, you will find:
 

  • Information + guidance on finding your ideal prenatal and birth provider

  • Partner support tips

  • Multiple checklists to help focus your efforts during pregnancy and stay on top of the (seemingly endless) to do list

  • Guidance on birth options + creating a birth preferences document

  • Breastfeeding information + answers to common questions/concerns

  • Postpartum planning to help set yourself up for success

  • Packing list + prep list for hospital birth, birth center birth, or home birth

  • Recipes + remedies for common pregnancy ailments

  • AND SO MUCH MORE!

From Meghan: "Having great curated information thoughtfully laid out for me was so helpful as I prepared for birth. I would go through it every couple of weeks, especially if I was starting to feel anxious about delivery. It always brought me peace of mind. It's a resource that is worth it's weight in gold for sure!"

 

From Natasha: "This guide is truly the total package. I reference it constantly to keep up with my exercise circuits in particular. Another favorite is all of the recommendations and resources that are included. They are invaluable to have at your fingertips for whenever any questions or concerns arise."

This guide can be purchased through my Etsy shop for digital download. Click here to find it. 

Chat with a Doula

Bring your questions and talk with a birth professional in a one-on-one setting. Perfect for expecting parents who do not plan to hire a doula to attend their birth but would like the unique guidance and support doulas offer during pregnancy and/or postpartum. These discussions are tailored to your needs and will be held over video chat or phone call. In some circumstances, Kelli may be able to meet you at a local coffee shop in the Des Moines area.

During these conversations, Kelli can provide information on:

  • birth options

  • choosing a provider

  • finding childbirth education that suits your needs

  • preparing for postpartum

  • optimal fetal positioning tips for birth

  • breastfeeding preparation

  • vaginal birth after cesarean

  • partner support tips

  • talking with your provider about your goals

  • additional resources for pregnancy and postpartum

  • and so much more!

Currently, Kelli is offering 1 hour sessions for $75. If you are interested in a package of visits (for example, three prenatal sessions and one postpartum session), message Kelli for details on pricing. The expecting parent is welcome to invite their partner to attend the session(s) or a friend or family member who may be providing support. 

 

By signing up for a session (or package of sessions), Kelli will share her Birth Options Worksheet and Resource List via email for no additional cost. Additional resources may be provided based on our conversation. 

As a doula, Kelli does not give medical advice. If you have questions or concerns about your care, possible interventions, or medical conditions, Kelli can help you think of questions to discuss with your care provider.
